Dvd Builder


rlarsonphoto@aol.com

Question

I created a photo / music slideshow with DVD Builder. I was able to burn my DVD. When playing it back on my DVD player it stops about 20 pictures in and skips back to the beginning of the production. I can use the remote to get past this spot and then the rest of the production plays fine. I thought there may be a scratch on my DVD so I burned a second copy. The skip still occurred but in a different location. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your tips.

Have you tried the iso file process? In DVD Builder, select to burn to an iso (image file) and uncheck all other options (you can archive your photos though). One the rendering is completed, copy that iso file to a disc (disc copier). Some people who have players that will play RW discs try those to check (not permanent) or since discs are pretty cheap, you can just copy to a good one. What brand of discs are you using? Burn at a setting slightly less than the max.

 

You might try cleaning the DVD player using a CD disc cleaner that you can get from a discount store or from someone like Radio Shack. Does the disc play OK on your computer? If so, it is probably the player. Is it pretty old? Some of those don't like home burned discs but will play commercial discs without a problem.

After a suggestion from one of the Gurus, I finally found out the only thing that would solve my particular problem (which was pretty much the same as yours). I burned the DVD to MPEG and rendered it there. I lost a bit of quality but now everything runs fine without stopping. I still haven't found out what caused the original problem of the DVD stopping after about 1-1/2 minutes into the production, but I am very curious as to why others are having the same problem. There must be something all of us that have had that problem are doing or that is causing it to happen.

 

I have burned many other DVD's starting with Videowave and then using DVD builder to burn the DVD and have NOT had that problem at all. And it didn't matter if I burned to an ISO file or not. They all ran fine either way.

I was having a similar problem with the same type of DVD, however with my problem the DVD actually stops after playing for a short time. And you have to surf past the point and then try again. After that the same thing happens all over again. I posted this similar problem on a different post and I received a suggestion that the problem might be 3D transitions if used. Did your DVD production include any 3D transitions ? I am in the process of removing all of my transitions and then see if the problem continues. If it doesn't then that is probably the problem. If it still continues then at least I can eliminate than as a possible answer.

It sounds like the same problem. I did see your post but I don't have any transitions in mine. The music fades out between songs but I didn't use any fancy transitions. Hmm?? Thanks for your comments. Good luck with yours.
